THE VAULT #06: BAND: Xingu Hill TITLE: Unreleased Material RELEASE DATE: 1995-1997 ORIGINAL FORMAT: AUDIO FILES ORIGINAL LABEL: NO LABEL
INFO: Unreleased Xingu Hill material, recorded between 1995 and 1997. At the time, most of the tracks didn't fit on an album or were not satisfying enough. The series includes an untitled "ambient suite" of four tracks, composed in 1996.
In 2000, I selected these tracks out of dozens of DAT tapes, and remastered them. They were briefly available at www.metarc.com.
Please keep in mind that these are "archival" recordings, not originally meant to be available. I hope you'll find them interesting nonetheless.
